The Turnpike Troubadours are officially back
And on April 8, at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for a while…all was well with the world.
the Toll Highway Troubadours are back.
After a hiatus of nearly three years, Evan Felker and company took the stage at Cain’s Ballroom last night, the first night in a row at the iconic venue.
The guys kicked things off with ‘Every Girl’, followed by a series of some of their biggest hits, including ‘7&7’, ‘Easton & Main’, ‘Good Lord Lorrie’, ‘Gin, Smoke, Lies,” “Down Here,” and more.
The set also included a fan-favorite “Drunk, High, and Loud” that RC Edwards recorded for his RC & The Ambers solo project, Big country.
And finally, the show ended with an encore performance of “Long Drive Home.”
For those of you who missed it, I’ve done my best to grab some videos from the World Wide Web, but perhaps the best part… it’s just the beginning.
“Good God Lorrie”
“Diamonds and Gasoline”
Here’s a live stream with a preview of much of the show:
Featuring “Good Lord Lorrie”, “Morgan Street”, “Wrecked”, “Down Here”, “The Bird Hunters”, and more.
